Mississippi

"The Birthplace of America's Music"  


 

Mississippi is where the Blues, rock ’n roll and country music were born. From blues legends Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and B.B. King to the king of rock ’n roll, Elvis Presley, to the father of country music, Jimmie Rodgers—the only place you’ll find the history, heritage, legends and folklore that surround the sounds of America’s music is Mississippi.

Mississippi Blues Trail markers are placed at key sites throughout the state to honor blues musicians and give visitors insight into this unique musical heritage. Take the time to follow this fantastic route to become a true blues aficionado.
